Long before nine-time NBA All-Star Steph Curry signed with the Golden State Warriors, he and his family lived their lives under a microscope.

Ex-NBA star Dell and Steph’s mom, Sonya Curry, have aired out their marital issues in the media in the past. Meanwhile, Steph and his wife of several years, Ayesha, have managed to avoid scandal. They aren't exempt from social media gossip though.

Ayesha Curry's comments on 'Red Table Talk' caused controversy: "I have zero male attention."

“I wanna get married, like the Currys, Steph and Ayesha s--t,” Cardi B says in her chart-topping 2018 single "Be Careful".

And I mean ... don’t we all?

But very few years, there’s a story that brings the closet misogynists out of the woodwork — Ayesha’s Red Table Talk interview was one of them. During her sit down with Jada Pinkett-Smith, she made a comment that opened up a can of worms on social media.

"Something that really bothers me and has honestly, given me a little bit of an insecurity is like, yeah, there are all these women throwing themselves [at Steph] but me, the past ten years, I don't have any of that," she said in the episode.

"It sounds weird but I have zero male attention," she added. "Then I internalize it and I'm like is there something wrong with me? I don't want it. But it would be nice to know that someone's looking."

Here's how the internet reacted to Ayesha Curry's wedding ring controversy on 'The Real'.

Additionally, Ayesha’s appearance on The Real sparked backlash on social media. When a group of shirtless men stormed the stage, she joked like she was going to take off her wedding ring. By the time the video made its rounds on social media, all hell had broken loose.

"Yeah, Ayesha done publicly embarrassed my dawg Steph she wanted to take her ring off for a shirtless barista," one person said of the viral incident, adding, "I don’t think [Lebron's] wife would do that."

But wait! There's more.

Usually, Ayesha and Steph don't pay much attention to the comment section. But after a viral moment at a Drake concert, these two had time.

A fan captioned a now-viral video of the encounter: “I’m crying Ayesha Curry thought Drake was gonna be on Usher time with her just for Steph to get glazed with compliments LMAO.”

In response to the allegations against her, Ayesha stepped forward with a word for her critics. “He thinks y’all are weird TBH,” she captioned a post of her and her hubby backstage at the show.

Is it possible that deep down, all you Ayesha Curry haters really just want Steph all to yourselves? I know I sure do. That said, Ayesha has made it abundantly clear that she's not letting up on her many anytime soon.
